On defending Rapolas Ivanauskas at the 5
”He can move, he can make plays so that’s a challenge for Mark … It’s something that we didn’t too a ton of in practice with Mark so now especially with Lafayette coming up, the same thing happened at our place. We’ve got to make sure we address that.”

On Marvin Bragg
”Being out that long really sets you back in so many different ways. … He’ll get himself back mentally and physically quickly. Then we’ve just got to figure out when we need him and throw him in there.”

On Sam Iorio
”It’s very rare for him to go 0-for-8 from 3. It comes down to just one or two possessions here. I expect him to continue to work — he’s one of our hardest workers.”

On following the Patriot League happenings
”I mean, they know that. We tell them. We make sure that they know where we stand, where everyone else stands. They know that there’s a lot to play for as much as this hurts.”
